The fact is that as deadheads we do feel we have a gentlemen's agreement with the band. They have allowed us access to their music and in return we have supported them in every move they have made. As a group and individually, I doubt you will find a group of fans that has been more generous in their support, both financially and spiritually, than the Deadheads. This band became the #1 concert band in the world for more than a decade because so many deadheads went to so many shows. It is not unusual to have attended more than 200 shows. We have also historically purchased every cd, album, dvd (even if we happen to have the show already) and hundreds of pieces of merchandise to support this group. Most Deadheads always have believed that in return for the access to the music we should blindly support the GD and we have done this in appreciation for that access. This new policy is a kick in the teeth to people like me who have contributed a significant amount of our income and time and emotional support to this band. I believe the outrage is justified, and that since this bond of trust has been betrayed, we have every right to use the only means we have of trying to correct this greedy act of the people that have become rich because of our love and loyalty.

I have bought every piece of live music and dvd's. It is not like they are starved for sales. It is more of a crime that the existing members still tour charging that kind of money. All about Dark Star Orchestra now. Forget this.

People are not supposed to get upset when things change? Why can't we?

You speak of entitlement, yet the GD furnished us with that right. It gets taken away and it is only natural that people will get upset.

I fail to see any other argument and surely nobody is claiming that they are not thankful for what they were given, right?
